AMD Ryzen 5 5600 and Ryzen 5 5500 – Zen 3 for narrower wallets

The launch of AMD’s Ryzen 5000 processors took place at the end of 2020 with relatively few models in the lineup. The company felt that the performance level of the new products was strong enough compared to the Intel processors of that time, and therefore they no longer needed to profile themselves as a budget choice. Due to this, there was no really affordable alternative in the Ryzen 5000 series that could, for example, correspond to the best-selling Ryzen 5 3600 from the previous generation.

Recently, however, Intel has to some extent caught up with the performance front, where the launch of the processor family “Alder Lake” took place on a broad front with models from the absolute top class all the way down to the budget segment. As many can understand, AMD was not particularly keen on letting the blue team rule undisturbed in the more affordable part of the scale, and therefore the company launched another set of processors in the Ryzen 5000 series earlier in April.


Today we will take a closer look at two of the newly launched models. These are the six-core processors Ryzen 5 5600 and Ryzen 5 5500, where the price tags are on each side of the SEK 2,000 mark. The question is whether the newcomers have what it takes to compete in the lower price segment? Join a review in the test lab!
